FALLS CHURCH, VA -- (Marketwired) -- 04/28/14 -- As any parent knows, children make every single aspect of life better except one: mealtime. From cajoling kids to eat something green, to threatening them with no dessert if they don't finish their meals, feeding children sometimes feels like an unfair prison sentence. The Fairview Park Marriott, however, is offering a reprieve to parents everywhere with its Kids Eat Free promotion. Just in time for springtime travel, this Falls Church hotel near the DC Metro is giving families a new lease on dining.
Parents won't find a more appetizing offer among Northern VA hotel deals. From waffles in the morning, to burgers at lunch, to pasta for dinner, kids have plenty of ways to eat well during their vacation. And the dessert options (like biscotti gelato and flourless chocolate torte) may just be enough incentive for kids to finish their meals without coercion for once.
Parents can look forward to enjoying equally satisfying meals off the grownup menu, too. Offering creative dishes that riff on classic American fare, the hotel's Ellipse Restaurant can accommodate virtually any palate, from the health-conscious (think garden-vegetable paninis), to the just plain hungry (horseradish-crusted NY strip steak anyone?).
When it's not time to eat, families can take advantage of the hotel's superb amenities. The heated indoor-outdoor pool and fitness center afford plenty of ways to stay active, while 32-inch flat-screen televisions and high-speed Internet access in the guest rooms ensure no kid has to go too long without access to entertainment.
Unique among Falls Church, VA hotels, the property also offers free self-parking as well as complimentary shuttle service to local attractions. This means guests don't have to worry about logistics while planning their activities. Located among Mosaic District Virginia hotels, the property is enviably close to the new development's exciting mix of activities, shopping and dining, not to mention the upscale Tysons Corner. Or families can travel further afield to explore nearby D.C.'s diverse selection of attractions, like the National Zoo, the Washington Monument and, of course, the White House.
Available through December 31, 2014, the Kids Eat Free package includes overnight accommodations and all kids' meals for children ages 12 and younger. Rates start at $69 per night. Travelers must use the promotional code ZJ6 when booking to secure the package. More information is available by calling 1-800-834-6704 or visiting http://www.marriott.com/specials/mesOffer.mi?marrOfferId=798207&displayLink=true.

Providing the needed data for application development and testing is a huge headache for most organizations. The problems are often the same across companies - speed, quality, cost, and control. Provisioning data can take days or weeks, every time a refresh is required. Using dummy data leads to quality problems. Creating physical copies of large data sets and sending them to distributed teams of developers eats up expensive storage and bandwidth resources. And, all of these copies proliferating...

Malicious agents are moving faster than the speed of business. Even more worrisome, most companies are relying on legacy approaches to security that are no longer capable of meeting current threats. In the modern cloud, threat diversity is rapidly expanding, necessitating more sophisticated security protocols than those used in the past or in desktop environments. Yet companies are falling for cloud security myths that were truths at one time but have evolved out of existence.

Digital Transformation is the ultimate goal of cloud computing and related initiatives. The phrase is certainly not a precise one, and as subject to hand-waving and distortion as any high-falutin' terminology in the world of information technology. Yet it is an excellent choice of words to describe what enterprise IT—and by extension, organizations in general—should be working to achieve. Digital Transformation means: handling all the data types being found and created in the organizat...
